Congress Returns from Summer Recess But Uncertainty Still Looms for Preservation Funding

Congress returned from its summer recess this week and did nothing to allay the uncertainty surrounding the FY'11 appropriations cycle and, in particular, funding for historic preservation within the Department of Interior spending bill. Case in point, the Senate Appropriations Committee removed the FY’11 Interior Bill from its scheduled joint markup with Defense and Legislative Branch appropriations on September 16th because of potential riders related to the Environmental Protection Agency's regulation of greenhouse gas emissions and amendments affecting the moratorium on offshore drilling in the wake of the BP drilling disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. 

Regarding the latter, Senate Interior and Environment subcommittee chair Diane Feinstein (D-CA) stated this week that she needed additional time to consider a last-minute request by the White House to increase the budget for offshore drilling regulatory oversight by $100 million.  In addition to the delay in consideration of the Interior bill, preservationists remain frustrated by the lack of transparency from lawmakers because the House-approved FY’11 funding levels for the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), and more specifically the Save America's Treasures (SAT) and Preserve America programs, are still embargoed.
